Prior to visiting Barbados, I checked the reviews to find the catamaran trip with the best reviews which appeared to be Cool Runnings. We booked for the five hour cruise and were collected from our hotel with no problems. Whilst the trip itself was fine, and in line with that of many other catamaran companies, I found the trip that we were on to be overcrowded, to the point where there was nowhere to sit or leave any of your belongings. I had hoped that once the trip got underway and people moved around the catamaran, there would be more space, but this was just not the case. Whilst I appreciate that it is a large cat, and business is business, this was certainly not the intimate experience that the brochure promised. Food was good and it was nice to swim with the turtles (and the other numerous people present!!)

Booked with P&O, a fantastic excursion, with inclusive drinks, food and all equipment. The staff were very professional and caring, and gave my wife assistance with snorkelling, which made her experience memorable. Seeing turtles and colourful fish was amazing. On full sail and with the music aloud the trip back was great. Would definately book again!
Well done Skip and crew!!!

By far, the best catamaran cruises available in Barbados . The thing that sets Cool Runnings apart from all the other companies companies, is the amount of people allowed on board. Other cruises pack people on and that makes the snorkeling less enjoyable. The sunset cruise should not be missed.

We loved Cool Runnings and they have an awesome boat! Ryan was our host who must be the hardest working man in show biz....he comforted our 8 year old son when we alerted him that he was nervous about the excursion and Ryan just made the trip a lot of fun. The rest of the crew including Paul, Casper and Capt. A were all great too. It felt a little rushed at first going to the first two snorkel sites...but it was still a blast and things got more relaxed and laid back after that. We would do it everytime we go for sure.
